Rive Gauche Redux Unisex

You really asking us this?

Well, our state of the art Japanese fabric is extremely water repellent thus repelling fluids. The equally advanced membrane keeps the water from seeping through the fabric simultaneously enabling the fabric to breathe. These 3 actions combined makes the fabric 100% waterproof: function and comfortable in use!

20,000 water columns for the tech savvy out there.


Our outer fabrics are water- and stain repellent, and stains can easily be removed by spot cleaning. Use a wet cloth with no detergent. Next step, should the above action fail, is to apply a wet cloth soaked in a mixture of washing up liquid and water. Wipe gently in circular motions. This will not harm the fabric in any way, it removes oil based stains often found in food etc.


In general, for all garments except the ones containing shearling the following machine wash instruction applies: The garments can also be cleaned in the washing machine. Wool programme. 30 degrees celsius. No bleach, no softener, no spin-drying/centrifugation and no tumble dry. Hang to dry. It is all stated in the care label inside the coat. We recommend special detergent for waterproof outerwear (like NIKWAX), but also wool detergent can be used. Important! Dry cleaning is NOT applicable on our garments. It will destroy the membrane and the coat will no longer be waterproof. Note for Wool shearling: For S-Cape, M65 and Caban Double Breasted the following instruction applies: S-Cape, M65 and Caban DB are constructed with a detachable wool shearling collar. Please remove this before cleaning the coat. Then all the general recommendations from the above section applies when cleaning the coat. The wool shearling can be hand-washed with wool detergent on low temperature (max 30 degrees celsius). The Moscow also has the detachable wool shearling collar and hood that can be removed, but it also has wool shearling inside the coat that is fixed and therefore voulnerable for machine wash. We recommend hand-wash for this style.


If you at any point feel the need to boost the water repellency of your coat we recommend the duo pack from NIKWAX. This is an eco friendly waterproofing/impregnation made especially for waterproof garments and it is easy to use. Just follow the cleaning instructions. It is available in most outlets selling high-end waterproof outerwear / outdoor gear.
